My Top Five Favorite Ross Moments


It's no secret that I think Friends is the single greatest show ever to happen to the world. I own all 10 seasons, and even though I've seen each episode no less than ten twenty times, they never fail to make me laugh. I know the show so well that Jordan likes to quiz me to see if I know all the names of the episodes. I'm right 95% of the time, which freaks him out.

Sadly, I think the character with whom I relate most closely is Monica. The annoying type-A clean freak. Sad face. But whatever, she's hilarious, as am I. 

However, I have actually given a great deal of thought to which character I think is the funniest. And I have concluded that it is Ross. 

I think it's because he's supposed to be the smart one, yet he's the one who ends up in the most ridiculous situations. Also, his acting and facial expressions and his tone of voice are just the BEST. So here, in no particular order, are my 5 favorite Ross moments. There are others, no doubt, but these are the ones that immediately came to mind. 

1. Chandler and Ross trying to quit the gym.
I die.

2. The one where Ross is "fine"
"I don't know why my voice is coming out all loud and squeaky cuz really...I'm fine."

3. Ross inviting Rachel, Joey, and Charlie over for a double date and then getting drunk on margaritas.
You can't see me, but I'm laughing right now as I type this. LOL, people. L.O.L.

4a. Ross trying to move his couch

4b. Then trying to return the couch

5. Ross's sandwich

Do you like Friends? Who is your favorite character?

I can't watch these right now because for some reason my sound is not working. :sadface:

However, "pivot" is also one of my favorite Ross scenes. And the sandwich one is notably hilarious as well.

Here are a few of my favorite Ross scenes, though:

1) The leather/paste pants

2) The new apartment excitement, when Rachel & Phoebe are trying to keep him from seeing what's going on in Monica's apartment, so they scream and jump up and down, and he wastes no time in following suit.

3) When he and Joey use each other as a ladder trying to get down from the roof. "I prefer not to answer that question right now, as I'm still carrying a little holiday weight?"

However, Chandler is my all-time favorite character. His one-liners are the wittiest and cleverest and the ones that make me laugh the hardest.

Full disclosure: I hate both Ross and Monica. But, because of you, I have come around on Ross a little. You have helped me see why he's hilarious and not just ridiculous and annoying. I can't budge on Monica, though. Too bad we can't hang out and watch Friends obsessively like we used to so you could help me with that. :)

I recently (like, 6 months ago) started watching Friends. I'm super late, I know. I don't know why I never watched it before but now, especially after living in NYC, I'm obsessed. I watch all the reruns on TBS but I've decided I need to invest in the box set. It just needs to happen. And luckily, this purchase is one my husband agrees with. (Out of all my purchases..this one..really?) :)

I just found you through Oklahomablog - and I love that the first post I see is about MY all-time favorite show. And, oddly enough, I agree with you about the funniest character. Ross was always just so utterly ridiculous yet sweet, you can't help but adore him. Anyway, feel free to check me out anytime. I blog over at

Take care!

I love Friends... and I mean I LOVE that show! I am not too sure I can pick a favorite... I love them all for all sorts of reasons... I love Ross's geeky-ness, I love Joey's naiveness, I love Monica's over-the-top-ness, I love Phoebe's weirdness, I love Chandler's sarcastic-ness, and I love Rachel's spoiled-ness! So funny that I found this post, I just posted about one of my favorite scenes ever (although I didn't say that) when Joey is a contestant on Pyramid!
